Plum Cake No 1

(Confectionary.) - (The Lady's Own Cookery Book)

Take eight pounds and three quarters of fine flour well dried and

sifted, one ounce of beaten mace, one pound and a half of sugar. Mix

them together, and take one quart of cream and six pounds of butter, put

together, and set them over the fire till the butter is melted. Then

take thirty-three eggs, one quart of yest, and twelve spoonfuls of sack;

put it into the flour, stir it well together, and, when well mixed, set

it before the fire to rise for an hour. Then take ten pounds of currants

washed and dried, and set them to dry before the fire, one pound of

citron minced, one pound of orange and lemon-peel together, sliced. When

your oven is ready, stir your cake thoroughly; put in your sweetmeats

and currants; mix them well in, and put into tin hoops. The quantity

here given will make two large cakes, which will take two hours' baking.
